Greece has received three initial expressions of interest for the development of a marina on the island of Chios, the country's privatisations agency said on Monday.
The companies that showed interest in the marina are:
1. KASOS SA
2. PAN PROTHERS ASSOCIATES, INC
3. AVLUM ENTERPRISES COMPANY LIMITED – IOANNIS & ELIAS D. TEFAS NAFPIGOPLASTIKI – CLEOPATRA MARINA SA – TOURISTIKOS LIMENAS PREVEZAS SA
The privatisations agency, the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HDRAF) will evaluate the expressions of interest and decide who qualifies for the next phase of the tender, it said in a statement.
This sale is being closely watched by investors who have been snapping up beachside homes in Athens, resulting in a sharp drop in properties for sale in the district. Most business is coming from foreign investors aiming to take advantage of bargain prices in Greece's real estate market, while securing the investment visa offered by the Greek government to non EU nationals.
